Do you know that in 2016/2017, Healthcare associated infections (HCAIs) were estimated to have cost the NHS an estimated £2.1 billion, of which 99.8% was attributable to patient management and 0.2% was the additional cost of replacing absent front-line HCPs with bank or agency staff for a period of time. Some 300,000 healthcare-associated infections every year cost the NHS in excess of £1 billion annually (published on 14th May 2018 in UK parliament research briefing). Covid19 infections are increasing in hospitals today. Variants of coronaviruses are becoming increasingly important as they mutate.
In UK, as of June 6th, 2021 there are 128k Covid related deaths, and about 28097 active cases, apart from the substantial mortality that can occur, the cost of care for infections acquired by hospitals will increase as their treatment will lead to even more resistant microbial strains.
Through our extensive line of high-quality and affordable disposable ECG leads, temperature probes, SPO2 probes and BP cuffs, exposure to infectious agents and associated cost savings can be minimised. Due to the compatibility of our accessories to all major patient monitor manufactured brands , a patient can use a single set of monitoring accessories from admission to discharge – which can improve outcomes by reducing the risk of exposure to infectious agents and saving NHS HCAIs cost.
